Question about Buffalo Technology DriveStation HD-HC500U2 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
There are generally 2 formats for Hard drives, the NTFS for windows and the FAT 32 for MAC. If you previously used windows then mac wont see it and vice versa. You can check this by right clicking and see the properties. If you want Mac to back up as well as using it on windows, you need to partition the Hard disk by going into the Mac Applications folder then select Utilities. If the Hard drive is connected you should see it and can select erase from the menu tab to format the disks according to your needs. This solved my problems and I hope this helps.
